TORONTO, March 16 — About 1,000 people marched to the Russian Consulate here to support the struggle of the Ukrainian people against Russian domination and demand withdrawal of Russian troops from Crimea. Chants included, “Russians rise up against Putin” and ”Referendum fake.”

“I have friends in Kiev who are Russian speakers, and there is no animosity between Russians and Ukrainians,” Waterloo university student Yuriy Palamarchuk told the Militant. “If you stay quiet nothing will happen,” said Slavko Stefanisin, a Ukrainian born in Bosnia who worked for 17 years as a long-haul truck driver.
